Symphony No. 9 in D minor ("Choral"), Op. 125. 1. Allegro ma non troppo. Ludwig van Beethoven. Otto Klemperer, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
Toonkunst Choir Concertgebouw Orchestra Otto Klemperer, Conductor. Live Performance: Amsterdam, 17 May 1956. Extremely amazing recording, because of quality, and also just because it's from 1824. It is amazing that we can still listening to something that occurred 188 years ago, from where I am at the present time. This live version (in mono) is astonishingly dynamic. There is audible tape hiss as was common in those days, but this does not seriously detract from the listening.

Presto - Symphony No. When you consider that this is all the work of a distinguished conductor, great orchestra, and stellar recording team, you should seriously consider getting it. The sound is amazingly vivid, with a presence and detail that one just doesn't get in the estimable performances from Szell (early 1960's) or Jochum (early 1970's).

Classical Music Discussion. Best Beethoven Symphony Recordings. all time great recording ◄ top choice for combination of performance and good sound quality. Wilhelm Furtwängler (1943) (DG, Music & Arts, Andromeda) ♫ Otto Klemperer (1957) (Testament BBC) Herbert von Karajan (1962) (DG) ◄ Bruno Walter (Sony). The 5th and 7th in his reading with the VPO (7th also with Concertgebouw Orchestra on DVD) are IMO the best on the market. Such a shame he didn't record more music, such as Mahler and Bruckner.
